Sally and Jérôme wrote the first edition of this classic handbook in 1991 with the aim of highlighting the special nature of the Southern Ocean, Antarctica and the Sub-Antarctic islands and the region’s inherent fragility. They emphasised the importance of understanding and appreciating this unique environment as the basis for taking care of it, yet acknowledged that with increasing visitation there has come the necessity for certain rules so that these outstanding values can be sustained into the future. Their vision remains highly relevant today. This second edition includes far-reaching changes to the environmental regulations in the Antarctic and Sub-Antarctic regions. Produced at the request and with the support of the Polar Regions Department in the Overseas Territories Directorate of the United Kingdom Foreign & Commonwealth Office, it helps make information on current environmental requirements more easily accessible and better understood and as such is an essential reference for anyone planning to visit the region and especially for those undertaking private expeditions.

“Southern Ocean Cruising” is an A5-sized book of 160 pages with 68 clear and informative maps and is finished in an attractive glossy softcover binding.

The Title Page sketch of an albatross soaring over the Southern Ocean is by the reknowned yachtswoman Ellen MacArthur.
